Music Story of the Day

I like this new album of Ray's even more than the first. It is softer and more heartbreaking and simply moving. I chose this song today because I was so inspired this morning when I received the following email and link from my Sister. Every single one of us should read her heartfelt words and then watch the link. I believe it to be a fitting end to this difficult and sorrowful week...

  • "To my friends and family, please take a moment to either read or watch Keith Olbermann's speech from the anniversary of 9/11. (Some of you may have already.) To me it sums up the heartbreak, frustration, and sadness of the current situation we as a country find us in. Some of you may disagree, and that's o.k. too, but hopefully it can open all of our eyes to become more involved in what we the people can say or do for this country. I keep thinking about my kids and their future. Sincerely, (my Sister)"
